Robotech Remastered - Volume 2 Extended Edition
You have heard it before and you will it hear it again. Robotech is a landmark in the history of animated TV shows and few have ever reached such greatness. That is the opinion I had when I was 10 years old and its still the same today. Watching the show now, I am amazed by how smart Robotech is.

For how great Eva is, for how well it digs into the emotions and personalities of its characters, 'Evangelion' gets very depressing by the end of it. When the show hits its 20th episode, almost all the humor has been put to the side. It gets very serious and very thought provoking. Watching Asuka (played by… Read more
